    The food's pretty good, but if you get sick of it, you're out of luck. There's some really good pizza in the Student Center.

    The DC food is actually really good. They always have options for those with dietary concerns... Although as a vegetarian, I must confess that I get really sick of pasta, burritos, salad, and sandwiches. Fortunately, the new student center has a food court with Chik-fil-a, a noodle shop, a salad bar, and a pizza place. You can go there twice a week with a standard meal plan. The food is really good if you don't mind a little repetition. Plus, they have top-notch chai tea lattes. Speaking of lattes, the campus has an amazing coffee shop called the Jumping Bean. If you need a caffeine fix, they'll give it to you. Off campus, Ivanhoe's is an incredible ice cream shop that attracts people from other states. It's got 100 different flavors of sundaes and milkshakes. There's a small town by IWU, which is about five minutes away, and they have a lot more food options.

    The meal plan is cheaper than it is at a lot of schools, but it is not always the best. It is good for college food.

    College food is college food, Taylor's isn't the best I've had but it definitely isn't on the lower end. I would say it beats most but could be better.

    A lot of people complain about the dining experience at the DC (dining commons), but honestly it's not that bad. There is a huge variety of combinations at every meal. Don't be afraid to try new things. Also, don't rush through your meals. It's understandable if your cramming a meal in between classes, but if you have time to enjoy a meal, enjoy it. A lot of bonding with dormmates and classmates happen at meals, and you don't want to miss out on that.

    It's decent food, and good daily variety, but over time, there isn't much variety.

    We don't have greek life, but we do have "wings", which is kind of similar and completely mandatory. There's no alcohol or passed out people, though. Just a lot of people of the same gender doing stupid stuff together.

    we have no greek life, but it is unnecessary because of the connections you can make with peers, professors, and other influential staff members.

    There technically are not set sororities or fraternities on campus but there is a special bond that grows between those in their select Dorm Wings. At meals, the unspoken seating is with one's Wing, surrounded by their Dorm but mingling is always encouraged (except with tables filled with surly/uncouth Freshman still in High school sophomoric mode).
